Yesterday morning I got up early and went for a run! This was a big deal for two reasons: 1) I have a very hard time waking up early in the morning, 2) I have not jogged for a very long time (but it's something I'm trying to get back into.)
I felt so good after it that I woke up early again today and took my dog for a walk. Again, I felt great so I'm going to try and keep it up. Really I only have to wake up about 30 minutes early to do this since I naturally wake up around 6:30am anyway (or my dog wakes me up.) And now that the weather is finally warm there's even more encouragement for me to get up and be outside. And, there's nothing better than finishing the work day and knowing that I don't have to go to the gym because I already got my exercise for the day.
I know the key to me losing weight right now is exercising consistently. I eat pretty well but I don't exercise on a regular basis. If I can get into a routine and get outside most mornings a week I know it will make a difference and I will feel a thousand times better. I just have remind myself of this every morning now!
